    Restoration Getaway: Dolores River Volunteer Event

    Spend a few days camped out under the cottonwoods along the spectacular Dolores River with us, while you're there, maybe kill some Tamarisk. That's what we'll be doing. This will be our sixth year working down in this part of the state to eradicate the invasive water hogging, earth salting Tamarisk tree. Volunteers will cut small trees or regrowth of previously cut larger trees and may also cage some Cottonwoods to protect them from marauding beavers.

    Restoring Critical Riparian Habitat in the Age of Invasives

    Join us for a talk from RiversEdge West's Education Coordinator, Cara Kukuraitis.  Tamarisk is an invasive plant that’s been taking over critical riparian areas, displacing much (in some places, all!) of the native vegetation.  How did this plant invade so rapidly, what other impacts does it have on our ecosystem, and what is being done to manage it and other invasive plants in the face of a changing climate?

    WHEN: Monday, March 11, 2019
